Product ManagerRaoul Joa

“Being the first fully dedicated Freewave sail which should also work great on flat water we felt the SUPER SESSION needed to get a crispier and more direct feeling than the SUPER HERO.”

Rider Profile

Sail DesignerKai Hopf

“To achieve this crisp, direct and light feeling the SUPER SESSION has a higher and more forward oriented draft position than the SUPER HERO.”

Rider Profile

Super SessionDetails

Freewave and Bump & Jump have everything that makes windsurfing so fascinating. This explains why so many boards are sold in this category. The SUPER SESSION is the perfect sail for that covering the wide range from flat water to wave. A power wave engine that combines great low end potential with speed, handling and excellent control. Fast blows, casual jumps and full-throttle turns flow seamlessly together and make you push harder and harder – like an endless SUPER SESSION. The 5-batten layout results in an outstandingly balanced design focussing on acceleration, stability and handling. The new SUPER SESSION feels light and crisp thanks to a higher and further forward oriented draft position.

The HOLLOW.LOWER.LEECH, which is adapted from the SUPER HERO, stabilizes the profile above the boom, preventing leech flattering and allows superior rig control even in overpower conditions. This perfect synthesis of handling, speed and superior control make the SUPER SESSION a sporty bump and jump all-rounder even in gusty conditions.

The SUPER SESSION is also available in monofilm-free HD construction. The extremely resistant material mix however has its price, which we want to point out.

Perfect trim and huge wind range!

Forget the time-consuming search for the ideal harness line position, the numb forearms, and the endless fiddling around! The patented print on the sail shows exactly where the center of the harness line has to be. Just position the two ends symmetrically at the left and right of the print, that‘s all.

Say goodbye to misplaced harness lines!

Quality guaranteed – No other brand offers something similar

Short-term thinking minimum weight is great. But over-reducing necessary reinforcements automatically reduces the longevity. NorthSails is famous for the perfect ratio weight to durability. To prove the superior durability and quality, we grant a unique 2+3.YEAR.WARRANTY on all our sails (does not include monofilm)!

NO TENSION LOSS

A new, unobtrusive detail with a huge effect. The completely redesigned iROCKET 2.0 is the lightest batten tensioner we have ever built. Its’ unique design avoids the usual tendency of the sail becoming asymmetric.
The most important feature though is the PRE-CALIBRATED.BATTEN.TENSION
The perfect batten tension is decisive for maximum performance and optimum profile stability. But even World Cup pros have difficulties to set it up 100% correctly cause each and every batten requires a different tension: extremely high tension in the lower part of the sail but nearly no tension for the top battens. To solve the batten tension mystery and to prevent any miss-tension, every single batten gets pre-calibrated in the factory according to the specs of the designer. Not according to feeling, but through a torque wrench. In addition, the nut is fitted with a semi-tight screw-type glue, so that a change of tension is prevented. So the supplied batten-key is only necessary in case you want to individually fine-tune your sail or in the rare case of a break to replace the defective batten.

Twice as durable, half the stretch

NorthSails stands for unsurpassed quality that guarantees a longer life for our sails. The triple zig-zag seams significantly contribute to this. And they don‘t come, as usual, in a single, but in a double version! They cover all exposed crash areas that would otherwise be damaged. The result is higher resistance to tear and a reduction of stretch by up to 50% as a result of the second seam, also benefiting profile stability and performance. Only the DOUBLE.SEAM.TECHNOLOGY by NorthSails can deliver this!

No stretch, no tension loss

What has been proven in safety belts is just good enough for us windsurfers! As the only manufacturer we use Polyester webbing at the (vario) top, the tack roller and the batten tensioner attachment-loops. The advantage over conventional Polypropylene is the almost non-existing stretch. Even brand new sails now keep the full downhaul tension and need not be re-tensioned. The same is true for the batten tensioner. A small detail with a great effect!

Fewer layers, lower weight

With the newly developed high-tech PURE.PATCH.TECHNOLOGY one layer of PURE PE material replaces the traditional multi-layer reinforcements. This applies to the clew, luff and the batten pocket ends. The altered structure in combination with the highly abrasion-resistant and virtually indestructible PURE material saves 50% of the weight of the previous patches! Woven in two directions.

Even faster and easier to rig

The all-new VTS.PLUS trim indicators (FAST.RIGGING.INDICATION) that make all E_TYPE and CURVE sails with fix-top even easier and faster to rig. Thanks to precise specifications of the mastand boom lengths the down- and outhaul are simply pulled as far as it goes, done! Of course, the traditional VTS trimming dots are also available to allow all specialists more flexibility for maximum performance.

Find the optimum vario top setting without the usual try and error

From the first rigging now the length of the vario top is set correctly. Easy to read length indicators show the perfect setting in relation to the used mast length which eliminates any testing and readjustment!

Inspired by high mechanical load capacity climbing harnesses and racing helmets

The exclusive two-piece Double.D.BUCKLE replaces present standard solutions. This construction guarantees outstanding trimming options and completely eliminates webbing slippage.

Extremely stable, extremely unbreakable

There is no higher load on the equipment as you get during Wave riding or Freestyle. Brute forces when getting washed or heavy wipe-outs can quickly spoil the fun. For this reason, from now on all wave and freestyle sails (except IDOL_LTD) are equipped with brand new, extremely durable epoxy battens that can really survive anything. Some more evidence of the famous NorthSails longevity.

Minimum forces for perfect trim

The integrated, nickel-plated brass triple roller minimizes the downhaul forces tremendously. The optimized side plate with integrated rope led prevents that the rope will be damaged or jumps from the roll.

Extremely stable luff reinforcement

The area around the boom cutout is particularly exposed to wear and tear, because the luff panel always forms wrinkles when inserting the mast. Over time, this „accordion effect“ may cause cracks in the monofilm. The flexible DURA.LUFF.PATCH reinforces the area around the boom and creates a soft transition to the monofilm, while preventing cracks in the film.

Improved sail control at higher wind speeds

Kai Hopf relied on the WARP to design the TT.TOP. The concave shape is slightly reduced, which improves tension and allows for a more effective, three-dimensional top twist. This means the top twists not only horizontally, but also vertically under strong winds. By virtually neutralizing gusts, the rig’s kept steady in the rider‘s hands, and works in a much larger range of winds.

Choosing the right boom length without experimenting

Since the boom is positioned at different points on the mast depending on the rider‘s height, the ideal boom length varies due to the different angles. To make it easier to find the right length fast, the individual recommendations are written directly on the luff panel at boom level.

The strongest laminate on earth!

XPly laminates consist of 2 layers of film and threads bonded together using clear or colored glue.
XPly has to fulfill the following 4 tasks in order of their importance:
1. Puncture resistance
2. UV-resistance
3. Low stretch
4. Rip-stop (comes into play only if any of the above fail)
Points 1 to 3 are exclusively depending on the thickness of the film being used.
The thicker the film
>> the higher the puncture-resistance (relation 1 to 1, means a film with twice the thickness simply has twice the puncture strength)
>> the higher the UV-resistance (relation 1 to 1,5, means a film with twice the thickness offers 3 times longer UV-resistance)
>> the lower the stretch (relation again 1 to 1, which even a higher thread density cannot completely compensate cause within the gap between the threads the film will still expand)
Only point 4 is related to the amount of threads being used in-between the film layers.
That’s why we believe using XPly being thinner than monofilm (like some brands do) is complete nonsense.
These facts have been the base for the development of our exclusive XPLY.PLUS. We use a thick film sandwich (100 or 150 micron = 4 or 6 mil) to avoid a failure right from the beginning and combine it with a regular thread-density. Compared to other brands XPLY.PLUS is up to 60% thicker adding approx. 200 g if used in the entire sail. For these “additional” 200 g though you get the highest durability/longevity level in the industry. That is also one of the major reasons why NorthSails is the largest surf center supplier world-wide. We are so confident in the outstanding quality of our sails that we are the only brand being able to offer a 2+3.YEAR.WARRANTY on all sails (except IDOL LTD and WARP).
We simply live up to our philosophy that light is right but only if it doesn’t go to costs of durability.

Eliminates unintentional leech flutter

Short, highly effective miniature battens support the area between the long battens and prevent any annoying flutter.

No more friction when threading the mast into the mast pocket

A brilliant trick makes inserting the mast a breeze. The NorthSails logo above the boom cutout opens the mast pocket just a little, allowing the rider to insert the mast with just one hand, without having to move up the luff.

Individual batten setting for better performance!

Since each batten fulfills a different task, we use a huge variety of batten types. They differ not only in their cross section (round or rectangular) but also in the materials used (glass, glass-carbon composites, full carbon) and in their geometry (thickness, width). Moreover, all battens have specific stiffness degrees and profiles, regardless of their length for 100% draft stability in the center of the sail, optimum twist in the top (horizontally and vertically), and reduced top weight (easier handling).
